average get killed in britain or germany or australia? and i particularly mention britain and australia, because in 1996 we had a very similar attack in dunblane in scotland that killed 16 young children. we instituted a handgun ban. in australia they went further. they had a governor initiative to bring back guns. they would give people money in return for the guns. they banned assault weapons of the type you're seeing here causing this tragedy. and guess what? there have been no more shootings in schools in britain, in dunblane since that ban came in. and there has been no mass shooting in australia whatsoever since 1996. and i say to you -- >> the crime rates of guns have doubled. >> i say to you again, this statistic of 11,000 to 12,000 murders from guns, it is way, way ahead of any of the civilized countries of this world. it is a disgrace to america and to the american people that it's continued to happen. and the reasons it happens, and i say this with respect to you, is your facetious attitude comparing it to cars. the fact that even after 20 children are blown to pieces, you st

pig which in germany is a symbol of riches and wealth and strength and fertility. and at new year you give it to those you love to wish them luck and sometimes, to be especially lucky, they'll get what fred has in his hand. >> a chimney sweeper, a symbol of good luck, especially if you touch the buttons on the chimney sweeper's coat. happy new year from jerry mane. >>> the world lost some beloved entertainers this year from larry hagman and andy griffith to davy jones o of the monkees and adam yao of the beastie boys. dick clark, the eternal teenager and the tragic loss of whitney houston. i can tell you're angry about what's happened here. the blame game has begun. a lot of people want to blame bobby brown. a lot of people want to blame the music business. some people want to blame everyone. what do you think? >> well, it's all of the above and a whole lot more. but it boils down to you. you know, i was introduced to certain people and to certain opportunities to use recreational drugs, and it boils down to whether i want to do it or not. and she was a strong-willed, strong-minded gi

killed with guns last year in similar countries like germany, 170 and canada 150. there is a reason for that. >> what would you like to see in terms of specific gun control? >> there a number of pieces of legislation we have been pushing. no reasonable gunowner who is a sportsman can object to bans on assault weapons made only to kill as many human beings as possible like in a military situation. no one can object to a ban on the sale of large ammunition clips so you can't reload. no one can object to microstamping of car traj -- cartridges so you can trace the murd e we pop. no one can object to eliminating the gunshot exception so even if you buy a gun at a gun show, they still have to check your background to make sure they are not selling to someone on a terrorist watch list or mentally unstable person or a felon. those are the reasonable things we should do. >> we had a heated debate on a previous incident. two things happened in 1996. there was a massacre in tasmania in which 35 people were killed. the australians, led by the prime minister, he brought in draconian laws after

in countries like britain or germany or australia, they've all suffered massacres many years ago, similar nature, they have 35 people killed a year. your country has 12,000. >> your murder rate is lower than ours that is true. >> lower? 75 against 12,000 in australia. >> violent crime rate is higher than ours as is the violent crime rate in australia. america is not the wild west that you're depicting. we only have the problems in our cities, and unhappily, in our schools where people like you have been able to get laws put on the books that keep people from being able to defend themselves. i honestly don't understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it's incomprehensible. >> you're an unbelievable stupid man, aren't you? >> it seems to me that you're morally obtuse. you seem to prefer being a victim to being able to prevail over the criminal element. and i don't know why you want to be the criminal's friend. >> what a ridiculous argument. you have absolutely no coherent argument whatsoever. you don't give a damn, do you, a
